Words Of Truth
"That I might make thee know the certainty of the words of truth..." (Proverbs 22:21).
David Calleth Him Lord
Outline by Brian A. Yeager
A. For the lost to be saved, he or she must believe in Christ (John 8:23-24).
1. If one doesn’t believe in Christ, he or she is lost (John 3:18).
2. One must also confess such (Matthew 10:32-33).
B. It has long been a problem for people to accept the deity of Christ (John 5:18).
1. Jesus must be honored as who He is (John 5:19-23).
2. You cannot have the Father without the Son (I John 2:22-23).
II. Body: Mark 12:35-37
A. They said He was the Son of David (Matthew 22:41-42).
1. Many weren’t happy to admit that (Matthew 21:12-15).
2. Jesus was referred to as the Son of David on numerous recorded occasions (Matthew 9:27-31, Matthew 12:22-23, Matthew 15:21-28, Matthew 20:29-34, Matthew 21:1-11, Mark 10:46-52, etc.).
B. Was He the “son of David” or not?
1. In the flesh, He did come from David (Matthew 1:1).
2. This is undeniably true (Luke 1:30-32 and Romans 1:1-3).
3. Jesus is NOT denying being the offspring of David (Revelation 22:16).
C. What was Jesus’ point (Matthew 22:41-46 and Luke 20:41-44)?
1. Jesus was establishing that He, even by David’s words through the Spirit (II Samuel 23:1-2), was the Lord (Psalms 110:1 and Acts 2:34-36).
2. He wasn’t “just a man” (Mark 2:1-12, Mark 14:61-65, John 10:30-33) or just another chosen king of Israel (Acts 1:6) as many thought.
3. So, while being the son of David in the flesh, He was MUCH more than that (Matthew 1:23, Acts 20:28, Romans 9:1-5, Titus 2:13, and I John 5:20).
III. Conclusion: He is LORD (Acts 10:36).
